Gardeners' Notes:

My favorite cultivar. It can be grown in sun or shade. In a shaded position it will produce longer stems, while in sun the flowers are held closer to the foliage. Shade grown flowers produce better stems for cutting. Mr. Fokker may be a bit hardier than other A. coronaria. The flowers open a deep indigo purple and fade to a steely cornflower blue/lilac.

I received a few corms (?) of this as a free gift. I almost forgot about them, but then planted them in late spring last year (2012) in a little spot and promptly forgot about them again.

Even though the area was tramped on and dug a little (that's when I saw them and remembered them!), they came up like gangbusters in June. They then proceed to bloom and bloom and bloom-until the snow weighed them down. Imagine my surprise this spring when the snow went and there was still some green on them, plus a couple of pathetic short blossoms trying to open!

They are the most gorgeous blooms that last and last. Mine are in full sun in zone 5b-6a. They seem to be making babies fairly well, too.
